Adding Delay to Subtitles


Sometimes your subtitles display up to a second or two before they should. If every subtitle is ahead of the movie by a fixed amount it's very easy to fix with VobSub.




Start VobSub


Unlike the previous two operations this one uses VobSub's main interface. Select VobSub Configure from the Start menu.








Adjust Delay


The number listed for Time offset (ms) is normally set to 0 by default. If you need to delay the subtitles simply change this number. Increasing it will cause the subtitles to display later. Decreasing it will make the subtitles display sooner. When you click the OK button the delay will be saved.

Convert to SRT

Some programs don't accept image based subtitles like VobSub rips from DVDs. If your application requires text based subtitles the best solution may be to use our guide for Converting Subtitles from SUB / IDX to SRT.

Convert to SSA

SubStation Alpha, or SSA, is another common subtitle format commonly used for anime fansubs. If you prefer to work in this format you should check out our guide for Converting Subtitles from SRT to SSA.
